Pop up Christmas card in a box with Detailed Deer thinlits - Part 2

Hi everyone,

I'm back today with the second instalment of how to make my Pop Up Card in a Box. If you missed yesterday's post, please pop back there as that's where I will give you all the measurements you will need to make one of these cards, along with a video tutorial showing how to actually construct the mechanism.

On today's video, I will be showing you how I decorated the blank card to produce the card above and this one:

To make the card there is one more measurement you'll need - the panels of patterned paper measure 6.5 cm (or 2 1/2") square.  

These cards really are much more simple to make than they look so I do hope you'll have a go. One of my team members, Lorna, came over a few days ago for a crafty afternoon and we spent a very pleasant couple of hours together and Lorna made this card:

I much preferred her colour choice than mine!! And here is the lovely Lorna proudly showing her creation:

And before I go today, in the cause of full disclosure, I just wanted to show you this version of the card. This was my first attempt, my prototype, if you will. I don't know if you will agree but this card is going in my "OMG What were you thinking?" pile. So many different elements fighting for attention here - individually I like them all, but on one card, it is far too much for me. Too many different glimmer papers, too many colours, generally just too "busy".
